According to the Dorset Echo... 'The driver of the vehicle towing it wasn't aware at first that it had come off.'

'He came back to the scene shortly afterwards.'

What an utter muppet.

No observation and an insecure load. Genius. I hope he gets prosecuted.

I once lost my race car off a trailer in the centre of Bristol, I was not the one who tied it on I hasten to add. Though its no excuse, my procedures soon changed after that incident.

Always check & double check a little down the road is my motto

I also do that, always have to stop, my incident was a caravan, luckily only at 10 mph

It's sits quite well In the dry.
